EWS, which first became available in Exchange Server 2007, provides administrators with the flexibility to store, retrieve, move and modify email and related data for a single user, a group of users or an entire Exchange Server organization on an Exchange server. EWS can be useful for migrating Exchange data on-premises or to a third-party host in the cloud.
